I've tried so hard to like this game, I really have. I've put in 200 hours, and it's 200 hours i wish i had back. I've uninstalled this game so many times it's not funny. Every time something new comes along I grit my teeth and hope for the best. It never gets any better. PvP is so broken it might as well be "hit your head against the wall" simulator. Sure, you can Try to win, but guess who you're fighting against: Mr. Op-bottoms and his fat stacks of cash! His money will shield him as he stunlocks you against a wall and kills you in one combo, doesn't that sound like fun? (I'm looking directly at you, Lu/Ciel and the new VIP system.) The various characters are quite nice, very varied. But every single one of them has a skill or combo that just screams, "Screw you, I don't care how good you are, you're dead." Dungeons so tedious and repetitive you'll think pulling your teeth out is a better time. I GET IT the level designs are beautiful, very very true! But I can see that the first time I go there, and by the 5th time it's lost its charm. I'm not gonna go into the in-game store. What I have to say about it has been said before.

Goodbye Elsword, you were a sick tempting mistress. But you've aged too much and it's time to return you to the street from whence you came. Godspeed, oh daughter of Babylon.

Most of the community have toaster computers and a dying rat running their wifi.

And all the Add players for some reason play with French fries as fingers or something. Probably why everything they type is so salty.

Pros:
-The Updates.
-Cool game to play with friends.
-Personallitys are well done in the dialogue and is fun to read.
Mixed:
-Pvp/Sparring Now this can be eiether pro or con pvp isn't just something you look at and say "Yeah its bad" Not to me it all depends on the person you fight and what personallity its like taking a gamble if you pvp you might get the "Excessive Try-Hard" kinda fighter who wants to give as little of chance as possible or you might get that rare occurance of someone who complements, stays silent or says gg I mean just being respectful at all. Sure there is much other types of people to but yeah I put Pvp and Sparring in the mixed session.
Cons:
-The Stingy ♥♥♥ people who can't take a loss seriously.
-Matchmaking is meh usually if you just fought the person you just got done battling if you both enter the que most likely you two are going to be paired again.


MY Opinion: I think Elsword is a really fun game expecially when you have friends tagging along with you in dungeons or forming up teamwork for pvp. Pvp for me isn't that bad I don't think it is pay to win I've beatten plenty of my fare share of ♥♥♥ kicking in arena you just got to earn your way up nothing but leveling and saving ED to get somewhere IF you really set your mind to building yourself up for arena you can achieve it without money. The updates are just exciting and always have me waitting to see what they could do next to bring to the table. Well done game.

At first, I used to be all for this game.

It was great. It was fun. I made friends. There was some semblance of balace in the PVP.

All was good with the world.

But over time, with the addition of new characters, it became increasingly pay-to-win.
The devs don't care. They're getting their precious dollars out of the NA playerbase while the KR playerbase gets all of the goodies.

Want a good Action MMO? Go play Dungeon Fighter Online. Pass on this. It may be enjoyable at first, but rest assured that you'll either fall into the Pay-to-Win trap, or quit out of disgust.

No doubt about it, Elsword is an amazing game with great gameplay and combat. I won't deny that, but what I absolutely hate about this game is the community.
I'm an Elsword "veteran." I've been playing since before Eve's character release.
I can tell you that Elsword had an amazing community with lovable players. It was very easy to make friends and get into guilds. It was like we were a big family. Even if there were tons of us.
I'm not here to tell you how I miss the old Elsword. I'm warning you about this game. The community is absolutely horrible. I can't Arena without people whispering me "You have no skill." or "Salty?"
It's absolutely depressing. I can't play this game without getting mad and taking it out on players, which only gets worse. Call me salty, that word's overused anyways.
I hate Elsword. There was a time when I would recommend this game to you because it was amazing, but that time is long-gone and likely to never return.
I don't want to sound like the "Haha, I've been playing since ____, and this game suCKS! I WANT THE OLD ELSWORD BACK!" because I, personally, don't like people like that and to be honest, they taint the "Elsword Veteran" name.
We get it, the game was good back then but stop trying to get it back.
That's why I'm quitting this game for good. I've never played such a rage-inducing game. Even Dungeons suck. I can't go through one without the entire team yelling "hurry up" just because I'm not at the portal within 1 second of the timer coming up.

To be honest, it could just be who I am. Maybe I just have a low temper and all of the idiots are getting to me. You can try the game out yourself, nobody's stopping you. I'm just saying, be warned, the community isn't so lovable.
